The new all-suite wing of the MoÌvenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa was once a barrack base that housed British artillerymen during World War II. Now it has been meticulously restored to offer you a sense of history that’s been fully updated with every contemporary comfort.
The three-storey Heritage Wing now features 62 sumptuous suites and an all-day restaurant. During restoration by Singapore’s DP Architects, the wing’s atmospheric original features such as colonial doors, window frames, high-ceilings, wide covered "link way" corridors and other architectural details were fully renovated to their former glory.
The building’s colonial ambience was also enhanced by contemporary flourishes. For example, a 4.8-metre Y-shaped table crafted from a single piece of Indonesian teak has become a design focal point in the WOW whiskey bar in addition to full granite table tops and oversized "kerosene lamp" chandeliers.
Taking inspiration from Singapore’s culture and tropical climate, the designers incorporated atmospheric fans (as well as air- conditioning), floor-to-ceiling windows, slate bathroom floors, patchwork carpets, natural wood finishes and local design motifs.
You will be able to enjoy the majestic view of the commanding Merlion statue from your room, a reminder of Singapore's magical history and traditions, or a tranquil pool view from the room.
Dedicated butlers are assigned to all heritage suites to provide the ultimate standard of luxury and comfort. Those requiring private meeting space can also request for a complimentary meeting room for up to 2 hours. You are also invited to the elite lounge where breakfast, evening cocktails and coffee, tea and snacks are served throughout the day.

Westwood came to public notice when she made clothes for Malcolm McLaren's boutique in the King's Road. It was their ability to synthesize clothing and music that shaped the 70s punk scene, dominated by McLaren's band, The Sex Pistols.

The Royal Mail Restaurant & Bar is a 60-seater establishment that serves modern interpretations of classic British cuisine where roasts and prime rib take centre stage.
Located at was formerly known as The Asia Insurance building, it was named after a vintage brass mail chute made by the Cutler Mail Chute Company. Designed as the world's first high-rise mail chute and depository, and patented in 1883 by James Cutler, it stands in its full glory by the lift lobby of the Ascott Raffles Place, a romantic artefact from bygone days of letter-writing.
Dr. Ng Keng Siang, one of the first Singaporeans to become a member of the Royal Institute of British Architects, designed the Art Deco-styled building, clad in luxurious beige travertine, and topped by a three-tiered scalloped stainless steel crown. The crown, that creates a visual peak and adds a touch of grandeur to the building, was intended to commemorate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Completed in 1955, the building was the tallest building in Southeast Asia at 18 storeys tall. This grand old dame was also the first modern high-rise office to be designed and built in Singapore after the ravages of World War II and was symbolic of the economic recovery of the nation and its blossoming position as a financial centre.
This rich heritage is the inspiration for The Royal Mail concept, providing guests with a touch of old world elegance from the days of letter-writing, Doris Day, Grace Kelly and policemen in shorts.
The specialty roast prime rib is served in three variations of succulent thickness. The English cut, their classic cut and The Royal Mail cut for the big eaters. For guests who would prefer not to have beef, there is also the juicy roast spring chicken, cider and honey roast boneless leg of lamb, butter poached maine lobster and more. Vegetarians would be relieved to know that there are also delicious options available such as the ox heart tomato and aged parmesan tart and butternut and spring pea risotto.
British label Mulberry’s romantic and inspired take on the heritage and craft found in the English countryside established it as a champion of that look in the market. Heritage and English charm are one of the primary facets of the brand, yet today this has been combined with European sensibility and modern, innovative new designs for the new century.
The bag collections take in a whole range of personalities, from the timeless understated Bayswater, the slouchy casual Mitzy, ultra-glam Daria and the Brit-girl cool, inspired by Alexa Chung, of the Alexa. Designed by Emma Hill, Mulberry often skips faddish trends for timeless classics, with designs that often incorporate splashes of fun and humour, meaning that Mulberry bags appeal to a whole spectrum of ages; both fashionistas and collectors alike.
Mulberry was established with modest roots in Somerset, England (where their UK factory is still based) and has emerged into a international fashion brand over the years and through countless bags.
They love to share their latest behind the scenes news, pictures and gossip from inside the Mulberry world with their followers; and don't forget to tell them about your Mulberry moments!

#L1-50 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, 2 Bayfront Ave.
Marks & Spencer was established in 1958 and has since become an icon of quality and style. Initially trading under the St. Michael name, the first store operated in a John Little store. The St. Michael name was officially changed to Marks & Spencer in 1994. Marks & Spencer offers a range of Men's and Women's fashion, lingerie, frozen ready meals, confectionaries, fine wines, beauty products, and toiletries. The retailer is also known for its green credentials as a result of its five-year eco Plan A to make it carbon neutral and free of landfill waste by 2012.
The retailer currently occupies two basement floors in the Orchard Road mall, selling items including clothes and confectionery. It has proclaimed however that it will be giving up these spaces to open a flagship store, double the size of its basement units, by the 1st half of next year, in conjunction with the launch of its spring-summer collection. It will also launch a new homeware section.
Marks & Spencer began with Michael Marks selling penny goods from a market stall in Leeds (UK) in 1884. He sold quality small goods all for one penny, using the slogan "Don't ask the price, it's a penny". In 1894, Michael asked Tom Spencer to join him and the famous partnership of Marks & Spencer was born. Marks & Spencer became a Public Limited Company in London in 1926. The St. Michael trademark was introduced in 1928 as a guarantee of quality and value. Initially used only on selected foods, the St. Michael range was extended so that by the late 1950s all goods sold bore the name. This logo is no longer used but Marks & Spencer is still the dominant brand trademark, with M&S being used more frequently in recent years in the UK. Over the years, their brand name has become synonymous with quality, value, service, innovation and trust. The business and its employees are focused on their customers and driven by these principles.
Marks & Spencer has always been an innovator in technology. In 1934 the company was the first British retailer to set up its own research laboratory to pioneer new fabrics. Thanks to its advanced textile technology laboratories and close relationships with suppliers, easy-care synthetic fibres have long been part of the Marks & Spencer clothing ranges. Meanwhile, the food laboratories were also a centre of excellence, setting high standards of hygiene. In the 1970s and 1980s the company pioneered ready meals, speciality dishes and sandwiches. In 2000, a total of 12 Marks & Spencer products were awarded Millenium Product Status - which promotes forward-thinking products created in the United Kingdom - the highest number ever awarded to a single company. The products included body sensor hosiery; machine washable wool tailoring; non-iron cotton and secret support fabrics.
Clothing is segmented by sub-brand for ease of shopping. From March 2000, the womenswear Autograph range was launched, initially to bring designer clothing to the high street. Autograph is now a premium sub-brand at our 'best' price point. This was followed by the launch of the Per Una range in September 2001 and Limited Collection in February 2003. In 2005, as design, production, and turnaround times decrease the range has become truly 'Limited' with new ranges coming into stores every six weeks. In late 2004 they also re-launched the Classic Collection which has driven an increase in their market share of the 55-plus age group. In January 2002 the menswear Blue Harbour range was launched, this brand is now the biggest casual wear brand for men in the UK. Autograph for men was re-launched in August 2005, providing a wider offer of designer-led pieces from British designers Timothy Everett and Nigel Hall. These sub-brands are also evident in their lingerie and childrenswear product offer.
Smiths have opened their 2nd store at Balmoral Plaza and wanted to share a little fish and chips trivia with you. So here goes....
Did you know that fish and chips are 100% natural with no added colouring or preservatives. They contain less fat and calories than burgers, kormas or pizzas plus they’re an excellent source of high quality protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, iron, calcium and dietary fibre. White fish is also an essential part of a healthy diet.
Tests by the Seafish Industry Authority show fish and chips contain approximately 170 Calories and 9g of fat per 100g. That means our average fish (170g) is approximately 300 calories and 16g of fat and our average chip portion (300g) is approximately 500 calories and 27g of fat.
There are around 10,000 fish and chip shops all over the UK, selling 276 million portions of fish and chips each year.
As far back as 1838 Charles Dickens wrote about fried fish warehouses in the classic novel 'Oliver Twist'. These warehouses acted as the forerunner to fish and chip shops – but the partner to fish wasn't the traditional chip as we see today, but either bread or baked potatoes. The fish was sold by street vendors who carried the goods in trays hung around their necks. The fish was purchased cold for about a penny a portion.
Fish and chips was the only take-away food not to be rationed during the Second World War. Frederick Lord Woolton, Minister of Food at the time, even allowed mobile frying vans to carry fish and chips to evacuees around the country.
The first fish and chip shop is thought to have been opened in Mossley, near Oldham, in 1863, although there are claims for one in London that opened in 1860.
The world’s biggest ever portion of fish and chips was cooked in Hull during Seafood Week, October 2002. The fillet, which measured 34 in long and 14 in wide, weighed 28 pounds and 1 ounce, beating the previous world record by two pounds.
On a Friday in the UK, 20% of meals purchased outside the home are from a fish and chip shop.
In order to produce the best quality fish and chips at Smiths they only buy the best quality supplies. All of their products are of the highest quality and they spend every morning preparing everything fresh for the day.
Smiths fish, fishcakes, sausages and scollops are all cooked in our homemade batter which is made fresh every day to Smiths very own authentic secret recipe. We only use the very best potatoes available and they are peeled and chipped fresh every morning on the premises. Our chips are authentic thick cut chips as this creates a healthier product for our discerning customers.
Smiths fish and chips are fried in the finest quality refined palm oil, which gives our food that authentic proper traditional British fish and chip taste. Our fishcakes and scollops are homemade each morning on site. Our peas are soaked overnight and cooked fresh each morning so we can give our customers old fashioned, real mushy peas.
We serve our fish and chips wrapped in paper, just like the old days and off offer a first class product and first class service.
Items include Tibetan Furniture, Korean Furniture, Chinese Antique Country Furniture, Teakwood Furniture, Art Deco and more.
What began in the 1960s as two small, family-run shops, selling souvenirs and handicrafts to British army personnel stationed in Singapore, is now a household name to both expats and Singaporeans.
Back in the 1960s, C.P. Lim and his brother C.K. Lim opened two souvenir stores located near British army bases, one in Jalan Kayu and another in Changi Village.
They became very popular and they expanded the business to include Lim’s Arts & Crafts in Holland Village. With the expansion of their product range into home furnishings and fashion, they eventually changed the name to what is now Lim’s Arts & Living. And they still sell souvenirs!
The Jackson Planis a gastropub located at Duxton Hill in Singapore where celebrated British food are featured along a unique drinks collection inspired by the way of life in colonial days gone by.
Successful restauranteur Beppe De Vito (from Il Lido & Forlino) has turned a wonderful shophouse space into a proper British-styled gastropub: a place where you go for good food but simple preparation and strong flavours.
The connection for its local twist, is Singapore when it was a British colony. The owner wanted to go back to when this place was being built, the foundation of Singapore in the 19th century, and wanted to do a gastropub because this is what's happening in the UK now. Great chefs are taking over pubs and keeping it real and not spending $2 million on a restaurant.
The Jackson Plan, in fact, is named after Lieutenant Philip Jackson, an engineer who drew up Singapore's first city plan in 1822, dividing it into four areas - Chinatown, Chulia (now known as Little India), Kampong Glam and the Eurasian quarter. This was no bad thing because Farquhar had been running it for a couple of years and it was a mess.
The gastropub will serve mostly rustic UK fare - which will feature fantastic and far flung spices and ingredients from India and America. It's not just fish & chips or banger and mash, but also potted smoked mackerel, cured ox tongue and pineapple jelly pudding. They'll refine things to make them more palatable, but they're not going to mess with the recipes.
They'll also be serving battered black pudding chunks in brown sauce, cauliflower fritters with curried mayo, and saltmarsh lamb with Irish champ (mashed potatoes done Irish-style), among other items, all prepared by Scottish chef Christopher Dougan who is helming this kitchens at this new joint.
Mr Dougan - a national boxing champion who is as skilled in the ring as he is in the kitchen - is the son of a chef and a fishmonger and has always cooked in gastropubs in Manchester and London, so he's well up to speed on what makes authentic UK pub food authentic! The 90-seater gastropub opens in the first week of June, in the space formerly occupied by Australian restaurant Uluru.
There's a good-sized garden next to the shophouse too, which will serve as an al fresco bar area, with a selection of unfiltered beer specially made by a local brewer, vintage ales, ciders and biodynamic wines will be served, along with cups and punches.
To round it all off, The Jackson Plan will offer a small range of desserts, one of which will be its version of the traditional Eton Mess. It will however, be made with local mangoes, gula melaka caramel and cream. It's their take on the Eton Mess; they're playing on the fact that the whole Jackson plan was to clear the mess that Farquhar made, so they're going to call it the Farquhar Mess.
